The Kwara State chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC), has advised the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, that its days of lawlessness in governance and leadership are gone forever.
This was contained in a statement released by the party Public Secretary,
Tajudeen Folaranmi Aro in Ilorin on Sunday.
Rather than the PDP ignoble past in leadership, the APC says Governor AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq administration has been globally acknowledged as a Government that cherishes law and order , changing the narrative of the sordid days of impunity in Government .
“The PDP should allow Law enforcement agencies discharge their duties and stop blaming the invitation of its members on the Kwara State Government.
“There is no doubt that the State Government has been magnanimous in tolerating the unruly behavior of members of the PDP , their thugs and political urchins during festivals since the assumption of the administration.
“It will be recalled that the annual Durbar festival by the Emirate council was cancelled last year following security reports that the opposition planned to unleash violence during the festival.
We have no qualms with idolaters like the opposition PDP worshipping their tin god but such unholy activity should be restricted to the house of their idol and not to disrupt public peace.
“We are not surprised that the PDP is always quick to accuse the present administration of corruption because that was the hallmark of their own administration for 16 years.
“Their trademark was diverting funds for education and health such as UBEC funds and Primary health care funds to private pockets.
“The ugly past was an era that witnessed the sale of government property to individuals without record of transactions, sale of government shares at the stock markets without recourse to the House of Assembly and sale of training aircraft at the Aviation College as Tokunbo scraps to its Governorship flagbearer in the last election among other infractions in public office.
“We have no doubt that Governor AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq remains the best Choice of the people as the Governor after 16 years of locust and pillaging by the PDP in the state.
“It is therefore amusing that the PDP still believes that its leader, Bukola Saraki is still popular with the people of Kwara State when he supervised the looting of the state treasury and collapse of critical infrastructures in the State.
“We urge the PDP to wake up from its slumber in the belief that it can use thuggery and cheap propaganda to gain relevance among the people, it is a new dawn in the state.
“The people have put behind them, thuggery and idol worshipping. They have realized that sons and daughters of nobody can now rise to the highest leadership position in the state,” the APC stated in its statement.
